Trinity Episcopal Church is the oldest Episcopal Church in Ulster County. It was Founded in 1831 by Henry and Catherine Barclay and John Watts Kearney, who was married to Catherine's sister. Henry Barclay was said to have brought the industrial revolution to Saugerties, and he believed that places of worship were essential for the happiness of his workers.

The church was built on one of the highest parts of Saugerties, in a Grecian temple style. At its birth it would have commanded broad and sweeping views of the town and the Hudson River. The backdrop to the main building is the Catskills in their ever-changing glory.
